A forgotten Murder by Jude Deveraux | Review

A Forgotten Murder | Jude Deveraux | MIRA | Pub: March 10, 2020 | Pages: 347

This is Book 3 out of the Medlar Mystery, and I was able to read this as a stand-alone.

I did enjoy it enough that I would want to read the whole series. It was a great comfy cozy mystery!

I really enjoyed the setting of this novel, in an old Manor turned Hotel in the middle of Oxley.

The book was very atmospheric and kept me on my toes. There were a few suspenseful twists that kept me intrigued. Many characters with their own secrets and lies. I wasn’t keen on any specific characters; I was just in it for the ride.

Having said that though, don’t expect a fast-paced action-packed thriller. This is truly a book for cozy mystery fans. More slow-paced / whodunit vibes set in an elegant English manor.

Thank you to HARLEQUIN – MIRA for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.

An English manor home, an unsolved mystery, too many suspects to count... It's the perfect holiday for romance novelist Sara Medlar.

After solving two murder cases in their hometown of Lachlan, Florida, Sara Medlar, her niece Kate and their friend Jack need a change of scenery. Sara arranges for them to visit an old friend of hers in England. Upon arrival at Oxley Manor, a centuries-old estate that has been converted to a luxury hotel, Kate and Jack quickly realize that Sara is up to something. They learn that Sara has also invited a number of others to join them at Oxley.

When everyone assembles, Sara lets them know why they are there. Decades earlier, two people ran off together from Oxley and haven't been heard from since--and Sara wants to solve the case. As the people who were there the night the two went missing, the guests find themselves cast in a live mystery-theater event.

In reenacting the events of that night, it becomes clear that everyone has something to hide and no one is safe, especially when the discovery of a body makes it clear that at least one of the people who disappeared was murdered.

Sara, Jack and Kate are once again at the heart of a mysterious case that only they are able to solve. But someone is willing to continue to kill to keep the truth about Oxley Manor buried, and none of the guests are safe.
